I am trying to use web3 in a Django based web application in a task which is run using celery and kafka. However while trying to use web3.eth module, I am getting the following error :

/blockchain_transaction_service.py", line 43, in create_signed_transaction
    nonce = w3.eth.getTransactionCount(from_address)
  File "/home/paras/.local/lib/python3.6/site-packages/web3/eth.py", line 234, in getTransactionCount
    return self.web3.manager.request_blocking(
AttributeError: 'HTTPProvider' object has no attribute 'manager'

At first I was getting an error that HTTPProvider has no attribute eth, so I followed the cue from this answer, to resolve this error, however I stumbled upon this one. The strange thing is that if I run this without celery it works fine. Below is how my code snippet looks :

from web3 import HTTPProvider, Web3, exceptions
from web3.eth import Eth
from .constants import *
from .enums import *
from .models import *
from .SendOTP import send_gaspod_alert_mail

import logging
import ast
import os
import requests
import json

logger = logging.getLogger(__name__)

#Initialize web3

# Global for exception message in Ethereum transactions
OUT_OF_GAS_MESSAGE = "insufficient funds for gas * price + value"

    def create_signed_transaction(to_address,from_address,amount,private_key,gas) :
        data = {}
        try :

            if to_address is None or from_address is None or gas is None or private_key is None or amount is None:
                raise Exception("Invalid params")
            if amount <=0 :
                raise Exception("Invalid parameter amount cannot be less or equals to 0")
            to_address = Web3.toChecksumAddress(to_address)
            from_address = Web3.toChecksumAddress(from_address)
            w3 = Web3.HTTPProvider(RPOSTON_INFURA_TEST_URL)
            nonce = w3.eth.getTransactionCount(from_address)
            gas_price = w3.eth.gasPrice
            value= Web3.toWei(amount,"ether")
            signed_txn = w3.eth.account.signTransaction(dict
                                            gasPrice = gas_price,
                                            gas = gas,
            data["signed_txn"] = signed_txn
            return data
        except Exception as e :
            import traceback
            data = {}
            error = "Unable to create signed transaction " + str(e)
            data["signed_txn"] = None
            data["error"] = error
            return data

Can someone tell me, where I am going wrong with this?
